Uh oh! Too late. Removed dividers to with 1/2" - 1" of bottom and left couple inches on sides. Took out all including the center. Filling now to test.

This was sorta one of my plans, plumb a 100+ gallon stock tub for "growing" LR once the system was stable again that way I can offer local reefers and soon to be reefers a new and much cheaper source for LR maybe $.50 to a $1 more then the base rock ($2) instead of $12.99 lol

You won't be able to cure live rock. It would be putting off nitrates and other unstable parameters. You would be able to cultivate live rock from dead rock though.

Yeah better said. That's what I was meaning. Add dry rock and make it live. Of course that's after adding already cured LR from my DT during the initial cycling.

So picked up the lumber to frame up the stand. Unfortunately between mowing the lawns, cutting down two trees, and picking up 157 decorative mortar blocks, I won't be framing tomorrow. Wife's got me tied up putting in the blocks around the perimeter of my lawn and roses lol.
